“Ukraine war,” Monterey Herald – March 16, 2023
Just over 250 years ago, America won its war for independence from England. We never asked for any financial help to support our military from other countries. Now, we’re supposed to support the Ukrainians for the same reasons for independence and freedom. But Ukraine will never be a truly independent country as long as Uncle Joe is footing the bill for everything it needs. If Ukraine wins against Russia, chances are Zelensky will be in the oval office again with his hat open for the costs of reconstruction that could take years or decades to complete.
Freedom that isn’t earned will never make Ukraine a completely free and independent nation.
